Father accused of threatening remarks

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. -- A federal judge says Katie
Wolfmeyer's father approached witnesses during his daughter's trial
and made comments they took as threats.

Florissant resident Katie Wolfmeyer is accused of conspiring
with former St. Louis Blues player Mike Danton in a
murder-for-hire plot to kill Danton's agent. No one was injured.

Judge William Stiehl said Tuesday that 51-year-old Patrick
Wolfmeyer made comments to two FBI agents and a member of the
Columbia, Ill., police department Thursday at the East St.
Louis courthouse.

The judge said he warned Patrick Wolfmeyer once earlier
that week about similar behavior.

Stiehl ordered friends and family of 19-year-old Katie Wolfmeyer
to have no contact with witnesses.

Patrick Wolfmeyer and prosecutor Stephen Clark declined comment.
